    A Japanese friend recently got a good look at this toy at that traveling "TF Museum" event. Shiny.

    (pics mirrored so I won't be pointing out his pic account to the world.)

    I can't put my finger on it, but now that we've finally seen closer pics of the actual toy..... it seems a little disappointing somehow.

    ...and should this be moved to News and Rumors?

    Looks something like a halfway-point between the Deluxe and Activator designs to me, If it's also about halfway in size, I'm all for it.

    I could do without the gold-tone though, but that wouldn't stop me from getting the toy ('specially if it's the ONLY way to get the toy)

    Color i can get over... but in the absence of such clear pictures, i'd expected 'something' more substantially different from the Deluxe... although at the same time i really can't articulate *what* i expected of it in terms of difference.

    Right now, i'm wondering about cancelling my preorder.

    It looks good, I (like others) don't like the shiny, but also the light piped eyes make them look too dark, makes Bee kinda lose his childish character. Also, the vehicle has been "squared off" a bit from his animated model. Still, if the price is right I will get this. I prey for a non-shiny US release though.

    Looks good, but I wish Hasbro would release him so he would be yellow instead of shiny gold.

    For all the talk of scale, you'd think they would take a pic of him next to Ratchet or Prime or something

    I want to know how articulated it is... These pictures don't seem to tell me enough to call whether I 'd get it...

    btw, if you can see that as well... a rodimus minor (in vehicle mode) seems to have a broken wing spoiler and arm.

    I still wish the Hasbro version of HDBB & WBOP will make it here somehow.

    btw, are those children assembling the Animated Toys in the background?

    I want this, I'd prefer a hasbro release, but I don't mind the color too much on this one.

    looking good. not going to get him though as after Rodimus unless a Strika comes out I'm finished with Animated

    A direct side by side is needed to see how tall he is in comparison. The proportions do look better and he does look more show accurate. Shame that if he did come out he would have silver Autobot symbols though :(  I really don't understand Hasbro's thinking on that when in the cartoon they were red and purple.

    Yes Thats the Hasbro Factory ;) 

    I'm liking the size and transformation on Bumblebee but how did they manage to make his head WORSE. i mean the head on the deluxe is close to the artwork but this is just gone somewhere else..Its like its baby bumblebee.

    Not too keen on the window parts on the feet either
